Podcast #14 – SkrewU – Live @ B.O.R.E.D. Tour 2003

Here’s a Throwing Toasters favorite recorded at the B.O.R.E.D. Tour in 2003. Remember the B.O.R.E.D. Tour? Yeah, those were fun weren’t they? Anyway, here you go, free mp3 for y’all! And why not leave a review for this unique (though woefully under updated) podcast on iTunes?

The R.A. Song Music Video!

Sometimes you’re just browsing the internet looking up references to your music and you come across something so unbelievably cool, it floors you. Something like this…

Super special thanks to the RA’s at Morris Hall at Miami University for this amazing video! I love it!

08-01-09 – Al Fest 2009 – Holiday Inn – Costa Mesa, CA

Wow! Al Fest was here and then suddenly whisked away from us like the football from Charlie Brown, but MAN what a ride! I saw so many friends who I had not seen in one, two, three or even more years! ALso got to hang with comedy music buddies, Hot Waffles, Raymond & Scum, Devo Spice, Tony Goldmark and Joe Lavelle!

Before we get to the set list, I just want to say thank you to Vikki who put the whole thing together! She did an amazing job and I don’t see how anyone could have any bad thing to say about the entire event. It was professionally run and a blast!

Okay, here’s what I played….

BAD INFLUENCE (with special guest Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz on shaker)
GOOD ENOUGH FOR NOW
SKREWU (with special guest vocalist Vanessa Whitney)
N.R.L. (NURSERY RHYME LAWYER SONG)
THINGS I’D DO 4 U
AMY (DEBBIE)

I had a blast and even had a little video I took and posted via Twitter got retweeted by Al himself. Kinda cool! http://www.twitvid.com/48BB5

Can’t wait for the next one and if anyone’s got good shots of Bermuda and I or Vanessa and I on stage together, I’d love to see them!
